Review

Editorial Reviews

Reviewer: Santosh Dhungana, MD (Temple University Lewis Katz School of Medicine)
Description: This is a point-of-care manual with essential information on managing patients with pulmonary diseases as well as medically critically ill patients. The book is a collection of decades of teaching wisdom from Dr. Landsberg that incorporates unique factoids and algorithms that are rarely found in other textbooks. The accompanying website provides access to all the chapters and images in a well-known format.
Purpose: According to the preface, this book represents teaching materials and illustrative cases that the author has compiled and refined over more than a decade. It incorporates diagnostic and therapeutic algorithms for common diseases encountered in the ICU and in pulmonary medicine, addresses common misconceptions, discusses basic pathophysiology, and provides illustrative cases to help get the message across. These are worthy objectives, and the book does meet most of them by providing a concise, portable, yet comprehensive review of topics that are difficult to grasp and fraught with misconception in this field.
Audience: The book is written primarily for physicians in training, including residents and fellows in pulmonary and critical care medicine. However, it should be equally useful to medical students and as a refresher to practicing pulmonologists, intensivists, and internists who take care of patients with respiratory ailments and critical illness. Dr. Landsberg has taught and practiced the specialty for decades in a premier American institution.
Features: The book is divided into pulmonary and critical care sections. The pulmonary section covers the approach to hypoxemia, hypercapnia, ventilatory failure, pulmonary function testing, chest imaging, dyspnea, heart failure, pulmonary hypertension, obesity hypoventilation, lung cancer, aspergillus lung disease, cough, sarcoidosis, venous thromboembolic disease, pneumothorax and parenchymal lung disease. The critical care portion covers shock, noninvasive and invasive mechanical ventilation, hemoptysis, electrolyte regulation, altered mental status, diabetic emergencies, advanced care planning, and code discussion in the ICU. It also has other high-yield topics like bronchiectasis, pneumonia, pleural effusion, etc. The unique features of this book are the concise presentation, bulleted format, discussion of common misconceptions, ample diagnostic and management algorithms, common questions on the topic from learners, and case vignettes. Rarely found in other books, these features really magnify the impact of the book on learners. A few shortcomings include poorly formatted pictures from patients’ charts and the extremely small font used in certain pictures and algorithms. Even though several topics in pulmonary and critical care medicine are missing, the book doesn’t set out to be a comprehensive textbook on the subject and hence remains immensely valuable.
Assessment: This point-of-care, portable manual on the most common problems encountered in pulmonary and critical care medicine is intended to enforce certain key concepts and clear up common misconceptions, not be a comprehensive textbook. This is one of the most unique and high-yield writing on this topic that I have come across, by an author who is obviously a very astute clinician and an expert in his field. I highly recommend this book to every internal medicine resident and pulmonary/critical care fellow in training.

This book explores the non-interventional aspects of interventional pulmonology, focusing on diseases of the central airways. As the field of bronchology and interventional pulmonology expands, newer conditions involving the central airways are being recognized with increasing frequency. Current literature has mainly focused on technical aspects of the subspecialty, but this book illuminates what else interventional pulmonology has to offer the pulmonologist, including diagnosis and alternate therapeutic options. Diseases of the Central Airways: A Clinical Guide presents techniques for the diagnoses, management and treatment of patients with intriguing central airway conditions such as: black bronchoscopy, tracheobronchomalacia, endobronchial tuberculosis, and tracheobronchopathia osteochondroplastica. In-depth chapters are written by international experts and are up-to-date and comprehensive reviews. This important new book will contribute significantly to the welfare of patients with lung ailments of the central airways. ​

This is the book that provides expert advice on the clinical aspects of respiratory disorders. The exemplary topics are obstructive sleep apnea, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, angiological sequelae of sarcoidosis, or epidemiology of seasonal influenza epidemics. The emphasis is placed on the pathogenetic aspects, and the relevance and translational potential of experimental studies. The book also presents the latest trends having to with more accessible and personalized health care for chronically ill aged persons, stressing the importance of the mental and emotional sphere in upholding the feeling of life satisfaction. The entwinement of pathophysiological processes raises the issue of the development of individualized and targeted therapeutic management strategies. Clinical practitioners should liaise with medical researchers on the design and execution of investigations to enhance translational power of basic science findings. The book will be of interest to clinicians, researchers, health care providers, and other medical professionals.

Acute Respiratory Infections

 Respiratory Medicine  Comments Off on Acute Respiratory Infections
Nov 012019
 

Respiratory tract infections (Rtis) are the most common acute medical problem encountered in primary care. Not only are Rtis very common, the spectrum of disease is wide. Clinical management differs according to the characteristics of the infected host and infecting pathogen. Despite these features, there are currently no pocketbooks that bring together clinically relevant information on this broad and important subject area in an accessible and practical manner.
This pocketbook offers a concise companion for health care professionals who manage patients with acute lung infections. The book covers aspects related to the diagnosis and initial management of these patients, with attention to specific infections which are notable for being difficult to manage, common or of particular clinical importance. The book will appeal to a wide variety of professionals in acute medicine, respiratory medicine, infectious diseases, primary care, and other internal medicine specialties.
